一句话总结:

如果你不甘心在哑巴英语的舒适圈儿里继续呆上四年,

如果你喜欢和别人用英语聊天却苦于找不到同伴,

如果你想要在英语课上真正学到点东西,

那么Albert Evans的课是你在南科大为数不多的选择。

 

课程收获:

  • 尽管课程大纲涉及听力、阅读、写作、口语四个方面,但是Al这门课的精髓或者特点依然在于英语口语交流。2小时的课有1个小时都是在与同学聊天儿的过程中度过的。就雅思口语考试的评分标准而言,你的Fluency and Coherence无疑会得到提升。

老师:

  • 一个性格极其活泼,喜欢搞怪和开玩笑的老头。
  • 酷爱音乐。年轻时爱听重金属,老了什么都听。特别地,对Boston乐队的"More Than a Feeling"给出高度评价。上课时常常会播放自己的歌单作为背景音乐,范围从当代流行音乐到Oasis, Jackson 5直至The Beatles等等。
  • 酷爱电影。

课堂内容:

  • 概述:所有人无论课上课间必须说英语;总的来说,学生的课堂参与感极强(不能混)。
  • 课前:10分钟的Small Talk。根据老师给出的一副图片或一个话题(内容往往比较奇怪和无厘头),每个同学需要在课堂中找到一个partner,根据主题与TA进行2分钟的对话。每隔2分钟,强制更换partner,与另一个同学开始新的对话。
  • 课上:根据课本进行听力、阅读、口语、写作练习。然而事实上无论是听力还是阅读部分,都有约50%以上的时间供同学们在小组内进行交流(其实就是给同学们聊天儿用的)。

作业&给分:

  • 作业懒得详细写了,细节参考其他评价。总的来说不少。然而这还得看你的接受能力,有的人,比如我,就觉得照着托福听力写listening journal是一件非常过瘾的事,呵呵。
  • 给分情况,暂时未知。

  • 给分:超好
  • 收获:很多

省流:非常好课堂,但是作业暴多

劝退部分
  1. 老师非常严格:课堂纪律严格(睡觉、说中文、玩手机这些想都别想)、作业任务要求严格。
  2. 基础(不含Pre、Essay、Video等)作业量:每周一面A4的reading journal,每周一面A4的listening journal,每日15分钟extensive reading
好评部分
  1. “Everyone talks.”在课上会大量练习speaking,想练习口语的建议来这个班。你在这里一节课说的量可能比你在别的班一学期说的量都多。
  2. 课堂氛围好。他要求严格,但只要大家都配合,课堂会进行得非常愉快。
  3. 收获感比较强。每节课都能学到东西,而且他会反复练习强化让我们真正地掌握那些技能。
  4. 平时作业对期中期末有挺大帮助。
  5. 有些任务是ungraded的。不过还是建议认真做做,收获会很大。
  6. 他好像是语言中心的负责人。
  7. 1积分就能选上。
总结

真正想提高自己英语能力的建议来这个班。额外的付出会有相应的收获的。
